    Well, of course! (What a stoopit question...)

    They had to keep production costs down, y'know, to keep the product affordable for the rest of us.

    (JK!!!) :D

    That was not our first take. Do you have any idea how hard it is for Ned to mess up on purpose? :roflBesides that bike had been to Tierra del Fuego and back so it had most likely been dropped before. :cry Thanks to the Jones' for the use of their KLR. :clap

    I received mine a week ago, with my t-shirt.

    I tested the techniques and I'm a btter rider now.

    Thanks you very much SpringOly!

    The pleasure is all mine - following (or more like trying to keep up with) Ned and the other riders was a blast! :D

    Glad you liked it!

    I ordered mine just before WestFest, but watched it yesterday for the first time due to a relentless schedule. Video and drills are excellant! :clap Only wish there was more of it, especially some nasty single track. Production quality is first rate. Kudos to all involved.

    Just ordered, and a coupla t-shirts. :D

    I got to watch a pre-production version at Wings' place on my way to West Fest, and it was chock full o' useful bits for no-talent off-roaders like myself. I can only imagine the full DVD's gonna be much better. :thumb


    Thanks, Ned. :bow

    I placed an order on the 15th and haven't received the DVD yet. Just checking to make sure the order got processed (Order # 14501).

    Thanks,

    I agree, fantastic service. I have a new, wonky address and think maybe USPS screwed up somewhere along the line.

    Natalie responded immediately to my post and is sending another DVD out. kudos to Natalie! :clap

    First off, really appreciate all the positive comments here and elsewhere. It's very exciting for SpringOly and I to know that we hit the mark, or at least somewhere close to it.

    If it wasn't already apparent, Wings has been helping me with all the shipping. She's been doing an awesome job- everything hits the mail the next morning after the order. :clap

    We've heard of a very few packages that seem to have been waylaid by the Postal Service, which given the number we've sent, is probably to be expected. If anyone doesn't have their package in a reasonable amount of time, please send us an email and we'll get one sent priority mail at our expense.

    We're kicking around ideas for the next project already... I guarantee it's something everyone will like, so if you're not already, subscribe to our email list. The next thing we do will be a free short that should be a ton of fun, and available only to subscribers at first... so if you're interested, give us your email and we'll keep you posted.

    :ricky

    What if one does not have a DS bike. Can these Skills and Techniques be applied to dirt only riders also?? I noticed mostly "big bikes" in the trailer. I ride a 525mxc, can I benefit from the information provided??

    _Bomber tries to lure Ned into some shameless promotion of what I am sure is an excellent tool for any rider_

    Just got mine in the mail today, already watched it :clap

    A little shorter then I expected, but well made, and to the point. Now all I need are a couple of buddies, a nice area and go practice. I bet it's going to be a b last.

    Another big thumbs-up for the DVD! Just got mine today (fast delivery—thanks Ned!) and was very impressed! And Ned, I really appreciate the fact that the general tone of the video—unlike many how-to videos—isn't dumbed-down or doesn't act like we (the audience) are idiots.

    This isn't a complaint, just a question—didn't I read earlier in this thread that there is a "garage" section of the DVD? (Because I didn't see it...unless I just didn't look in the right place?) If not, I hope you can add it at some point—that would be great!

    :D Hi Bomber!

    Shameless plugs aside, yes, the basics of riding offroad are the same regardless of bike size (just like they are the same regardless of bike brand). Dirtbikes can be taken further, more easily, than dualsports because of their light weight, but what we present in the DVD is absolutely relevant to smaller bikes.


    Glad you like it- and yes, there is a garage section! Go to "Extras" for sections on maintenance and "pre-flight", a tire change, how to set suspension sag, and so on...

    This is not a complaint . . .

    Canadian customers: My DVD was shipped Aug. 15 and here it is Sept. 4 and it has still not arrived. Any Canadians experiencing the same delays? I know that people in Sweden and UK are getting their decals, t-shirts and DVD in as little as five days.

    D*mned Borders and Customs "Services"!
